jewel-eyed wizard hat
jewel-eyed wizard hat

This is a pointy hat with stars and moons embroidered on it, and 'WIZZARD' spelled out in sequins. That way, people will know you're a wizard when you wear it. Because wizards can spell, but they can't spell. Ba-dum-bum-pssht.

It's also got a big jewel on it in the shape of an eye. And you know how big of a deal mystical third eyes are supposed to be. Or maybe you don't, because you haven't spent enough time hanging out with New Age weirdos.

Now all you need is a wizard robe, and you'll be ready to cast Lvl. 3 Eroticism.

Notes

  • July 2006's item of the month from Mr. Store. Its in-store description:
    Does various wizardy-type things. Also has the tallest item description popup of anything in the game. Cannot be equipped in Hardcore.
  • The "+5 Duration to Buffs You Cast" effect only applies to skills that can be cast from the buff drop down menu, not to skills that can only be cast on oneself.
  • The hat restores level / 2? + 1d3 MP every turn, including turns not spent adventuring (e.g., Cooking, or working out).
  • As of the October 25, 2007 Trivial Updates: "The jewel-eyed wizard hat now works its buff-duration-increasing magic from your inventory, and no longer needs to be equipped for that purpose."
  • If you view the source of the item description page, you can see an HTML comment after "Ba-dum-bum-pssht" which reads "Two drums and a cymbal fall off a cliff." This was quoted by Xenophobe on the February 16, 2006 radio show as the "world's best joke."

References

  • The item description references the Discworld series, in which one of the main characters, Rincewind, has a hat with the word "WIZZARD" emblazoned upon it in sequins.
  • The item description references the concept of the third eye which is part of certain types of New Age mysticism. It may also reference the Dungeons & Dragons psionic item of the same name.
  • "Lvl. 3 Eroticism" and the wizard robe refer to the online antics of BloodNinja mocking people seeking cybersex. The most infamous example can be found on bash.org.
  • The spell "Magic Missile" is a reference to the D&D spell magic missile.
  • The item name is a pun on July, in which this was Item of the Month. (July, jewel-eye, get it?)
